Facebook.com by default sends all your notifications related to your account to the email address that you used to signup with the facebook. No doubt a very nice and helpful feature, but some times facebook notifications makes your inbox a mess if you got too many notifications a day including any facebook message, or when some one writes on your facebook wall, or comments on wall or picture etc.
Well like many people who are fedup of this facebook notifications feature, one of my friend recently asked me about how to get rid of it. He said:
facebook constantly emails me about posts written on walls or if a friend writes something how can i get rid of this thing ?
Well, honestly getting rid of this annoying and some times frustrating facebook notification email feature is really simple! Heres how to get it done.
Login to Facebook.com account
First step is to access facebook.com and login with your account for which you want to change the settings.
Goto Account Settings Page
After logging in to the facebook.com account, while on the homepage goto the account settings page from the top right menu Account > Account Settings
Goto Facebook email Notifications settings
Once on the account settings page, you will see another sub top menu with a link saying notifications
This page shows you the options related to notifications to your email address or cell phone via sms from facebook.com
Here from the list you can check or uncheck all the items that you need to be notified or not to be notified about.
Save your Facebook Notification emails Settings
Once you have made selection of the notifications that you need to be notified to your email address from facebook.com (you can uncheck all items too if you don’t want to be notified at all) click Save Changes.
So now you have chosen which updates from facebook you want to be notified about, including wall posts, comments on posts, links and photos, inbox messages, application updates etc. Or if you have unchecked all the boxes then you will not be notified for any facebook notifications via email address.
